Eric Clapton has announced the release of a new album, The Lady In The Balcony: Lockdown Sessions, on November 12.
Available via Mercury Studios on multiple formats, the album features live performances of 17 songs by the English rock and blues guitarist and his longtime bandmates Nathan East (Bass and Vocals), Steve Gadd (Drums) and Chris Stainton (Keyboards).
Produced by Clapton’s legendary longtime Grammy-winning producer Russ Titelman and recorded live at Cowdray House in West Sussex, England, Clapton and company revisits classics such as “After Midnight,” “Layla,” “Bell Bottom Blues,” “Tears in Heaven,” “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out” and “Key to the Highway.”
In addition, Clapton and crew also offer their own versions of “Black Magic Woman” and “Man of the World.”
The project was initiated as a result of the forced cancellation of Clapton’s concerts scheduled for May 2021 at the Royal Albert Hall due to the continued disruption caused by the pandemic.
The album will be available on DVD+CD, Blu-ray+CD, 4K UHD+Blu-ray, 2 LPs pressed on yellow vinyl, and a Deluxe Edition containing the DVD, Blu-ray & CD packaged in a 40 page 12″ x 12″ hardback photo book, digital video & digital audio. In addition, a CD-only version will be available exclusively at Target.
